Table of contents



BSP ambassadors, all of whom are Scholar alumni, bring visibility to the scholarship of teaching and learning in biology and serve as communicators, role models, and mentors for members of the life science disciplinary societies. As ambassadors, they are committed to presenting their scholarship or their journey into scholarship; leading professional development programs; hosting discussions, conversations, and forums at societal meetings; disseminating information; recruiting prospective scholars; and directing societal plans in education. For a list of recent Scholar Ambassadors, please visit the Biology Scholars website at:


Below is a list of professional development activities (listed below) planned by other life sciences professional societies – not ASM – which will be updated over the course of the year. If anyone is planning to participate in these events, or others, and is able to share materials about the Biology Scholars Program (BSP), please contact us at We will be happy to send you pertinent BSP information for distribution.
